Bekvam from kitchen to bathroom





Materials: BEKVAM kitchen trolley

Description: This is a simple hack using a BEKVAM kitchen trolley to mount a counter-top bathroom basin (not bought from IKEA).

A hole was drilled in the centre of the top for the waste pipe. I was planning to attach the basin with sealant, but in the end decided to leave it un-attached as it was securely located by the waste fitting and the whole thing would be easy to dis-assemble for cleaning etc.

I also sawed off the back legs of the trolley so they were the same length as the front legs without the castors attached.

That’s it!

    Did this seven years ago. Make sure you protect the top from water on both sides. It will eventually warp.

    varnish that trolley or you’ll loose it with humidity.
